Notes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Patch fix of shnid 8327

I used the MAC download from archive (shnid 8763) to patch about 35 seconds between He's Gone and Drums. Resulting SBE's were corrected using shntool. Many thanks to Matt Vernon for taping the show and Dale Shepherd for getting it out to the masses.

Set 1 - Some real firepower energy here; love the on-a-dime transition between Mexicali > Mama Tried...there are even enough Bobby slide and Jerry fireworks within Jed to make me seriously reconsider that '78 uptempo reading, something I never really liked too much. Music Never Stopped closes this set with a real bang; only FOTD doesn't win here, and I think it's due to the extended patch...kudos and thanks to those that make the efforts in bringing us the full experience of the song, but in this case the drop-off is a little too harsh to ride out to the conclusion.

Set 2 - S>F merely sets the table for that crazy, explosive Estimated - WOW! I also love these extended, party-crazy rhythm devil sections in '78 that used some unidentified imps on various percussion - is that Jerry on the steel drums? He was famously spotted playing them on the Duke 4/12 show...

Black Peter takes some time getting aligned, and halfway through they really rachet up the fireworks - hot DAMN this is good. Unfortunately, this suffers the same fate as FOTD in the first set, and the rest of the show is via audience patch. I like this Peter enough to listen to it again, however - it's just really, really good.

I think if there was a show that could use a little matrix-treatment (paging Mr. Hunter Seamons....:) it's this one. Of course, we all appreciate the efforts in patching the show, but I think a good 'trix would make those sbd dropouts a little less harsh. A very, very solid show with a bit of tweaking needed.

Where to start with this one? The giant Allman Brothers mushroom logo that someone had drawn in the dust on one of the equipment trucks? The Hells Angels in force at the show (no trouble at all...)? The 95 degree temperature inside the hall? Bobby, Jerry, and Donna doing the hula (yes, really!) during Iko Iko... The white lights being turned up full behind Jerry at the end of He's Gone so that he in fact did dissapear in front of our eyes... The bathroom sink that someone accidently ripped out of the wall during the show... or the Hell's Angels AFTER the show, when they came flying through the bumper to bumper post-show traffic jam. Whee!

Subject: Nearly-perfect Estimated
Scarlet> Fire transition is great and the climax of Fire where everything collapses and then hits the Scarlet reprise is splendid. Great slidework. Same goes for Iko. Love that Weir 78 slide.

Estimated is perfect. If there are better versions there aren't many.
